SOURCE: Electrical

Charge the battery then start the bike and check your charging system. If the charging system is good but the battery dies, there is more than likely a current draw on the battery while the key is off. It could also be the battery. Even though it is new, check the electrolite level if it is a standard battery and refill with distilled water. If it's a maintenance free battery, charge it and take it to a shop and have it load tested.

Connect the two wires together that goes to the kickstand it should keep it from starting. With wires unpluged it should start.
If that is the case you need a switch

that is the best part you can do to troubleshoot the issue, trace the cables, my bet is that there is a loose connection somewhere or a worn out harness

Wont start new battery new voltage regulator no spark to plugs

Bad coil, or one of the safety switches are shutting the coil down. To test this before replacing the coil. Disconnect the small wire to the coil that is mounted with an electrical clip. This is the wire that kills the coil by grounding it. Try to start it now but be aware that you just disabled your off switch. If it starts you will only be able to turn it of by choking the carb, grounding your spark plug wire or pulling the plug wire off. Good luck.

My masport genius xrs will not start seems to be electrical, cannot see a spark with plug out of engine and connected.

hi if the xrs engine is briggs and stratton

try new plug 1st , then pull the kill wire from the stop switch and retest for spark

if still no spark take top starter cover assy off the mower and pull the kill wire off at the armature
temporarily fit the starter cover and retest for spark - if still no spark the faulty armature indicated
replace the armature - and set the air gap between armature and flywheel ( with magnets under it )to 0.010" and tighten the bolt - refit kill wire to armature and stop switch and refit starter cover assy and plug - should all be good

NOTE to obatain correct armature for engine make a note of numbers off the starter cover
eg 12f802-01215-e1 give the numbers off your starter cover to your local smal engine shop he will be able to get new armature for you .

cheers hope it helps

I am working on my Husqvarna 124 L line trimmer. It suddenly stopped running. I know a few things about fixing engines and because of the way that immediately stopped, I figured that it was an electrical...

Kinda backwards than normal operation I see string trimmers. It could a weird setup. Check the kill operation with an ohm meter. If it is a closed circuit in run and open in kill position you may electrical connection problem in the wiring.

But normally you ground the magneto to kill the spark. By leaving the wires off at coil you should spark and not when you ground it.

Post an comment back when you out what is going here as I haven't seen this before. This might explain some reports I seen about customers receiving electrical from some Husqvarna trimmers.

I would say to replace the motor. The only thing I would suggest is see where you have power and where you do not have power. If it is plugged into the wall outlet then you should have power going everywhere including the motor. If the motor has power and will not start up then replace it. But I would check EVERYTHING out and make ksure that it is the problem and nothing else is the problem
